A little research

I had not previously thought too much about the mini-maze; from what I had read, I thought it was only offered where catheter ablations had failed.  It turns out to be similar, but with keyhole access at the side of the chest instead of the leg, general anaesthetic rather than sedation and the use of cardiac bypass.  Seems quite frightening in comparison.  I still plan to follow the trial route.
